How much is poor air quality costing your business?

How many times have you felt sluggish at work? Or blamed pollen for triggering pesky cold-like symptoms. Did you ever think the C02 levels in the office could be the cause?

The quality of the air we breathe can impact our health and well-being – so is it time we shifted our focus to making clean indoor air a norm? The good news is, we are. And in the wake of a global pandemic, the timing couldn’t be better.

Achieving better indoor air quality is easier than you think

The spread of respiratory illnesses was really spotlighted during the pandemic. So, too, was the call for better ventilation to stop the spread. But airborne transmission is more than just about Covd-19. Colds and influenza are also common drivers of sickness and workplace absenteeism every year.

The operation of your Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system plays a key role in delivering healthier and safer indoor air quality by removing pollutants from the air. Ensuring your building’s HVAC is fulfilling its purpose and maintaining good air quality has just been made a little easier.

The action you can take now to improve air quality

A new tool makes it simple to create a safe, healthy and enjoyable environment for your building’s occupants by allowing you to rate the indoor air quality as exceptional, superior, excellent or commendable.

IAQ Ventilation has developed the Healthy Building Scorecard which sets out eight steps to achieving improved indoor air quality. Let’s explore them.

The eight steps to safer, healthier air

The eight steps are:

Define your goals such as reducing absenteeism, reducing the risk of airborne viruses or improving occupant comfort and productivity.

Measure Indoor Air Quality in real time to ensure issues are resolved quickly and workers and visitors are kept safe.

Improve Ventilation to reduce the spread of airborne contaminants.

Control Humidity and Moisture to prevent the growth of mould and fungus.

Optimise HVAC operation through temperature, ventilation and moisture control to ensure energy efficiency.

Maintain HVAC hygiene so your system operates as it is designed.

Filter dust and airborne contaminants to minimise the need for repairs and maximise your HVAC’s lifespan, and

Air purification and cleaning to neutralise and remove airborne pollutants.
